Abstract:
This paper describes a computer code for conceptual design of mission optimized twin-turboprop Commuter or Regional aircraft. Optimum configurations and flight profiles of such aircraft are determined by coupling this code to an optimization code based on Simulated Annealing. As an example, minimum DOC configurations were determined for 50-seat Regional aircraft for operation over three stage lengths. The DOC per seat-nm and DOC per trip of the optimum aircraft were found to be comparable or significantly (8 to 17 %) lower than the corresponding values for five contemporary 40 to 50 seater aircraft for short stage lengths.
